Good Afternoon Everyone,
How are we doing? Thank you for being here for Day 10
So today's theme:
Day 9: If you could start your crafting life all over again what would you differently OR Craft something that has a beach theme
"If you could start your crafting life all over again what would you differently"
This is easy for me!
I would pick one thing and stay with it.
When I first started crafting I would try everything that was on the market, and I spent a fortune, and to be honest pretty much everything I got thinking about it and looking back now was not my style and pretty much rubbish!
So if I was to start fresh this is what I would do.
1. Look on pinterest see what ideas you like
2. Get on some craft forums and explain you are new have not purchased anything but would like some suggestions
3. Join a craft class, one were everything is provided apart from basic equipment - I am saying basic to me is, glue, scissors, knife.
4. Buy a couple of magazines
5. Ask LOTS of questions.
Once you have done this, if you have decided what you like the look of then go and get further advise on just this one element of crafting and go from there, and once you gain your confidence then you can start exploring in different avenues and don't forget what one person says is the best thing going, might not be the best thing for you.
Most importantly have fun!
So if you had to start again what would you do differently?
Don't forget to leave me a comment.
I have decided as well that I will also do a little give away - 3 separate winners -
Prize 1 - £10 Bee Crafty Gift Voucher
Prize 2 - £5 Craft Magazine - winner to choose
Prize 3 - Lili of the valley stamp to the value of £4.75
The only rules to be eligible are:
1. Follow my blog
2. Comment a minimum of 20 days out of the 30
This is not a rule but I would also love for you to follow me on Facebook - if you do follow me, let me know in the comments and this will give you an additional entry.
Unfortunately due to postal charges these days this give away is only open to UK friends. (I will look into how I can do a give away for my international friends and try and do something in a few months time)
